In New York Times Reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns’ new book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” the authors paint a negative picture of President Biden’s relationship with his Vice President, Kamala Harris.
The book, which is set to release soon, alleges that Harris was frustrated with Biden when he appointed her ‘Immigration Czar’, saying that she desired a more ‘softball’ assignment such as maintaining diplomatic relations with Nordic countries.
The book also claims that Biden’s ‘white inner circle’ looked down on Harris, implying that Biden and his top officials are racist.
Martin and Burns also claim that the now famous picture of Harris in black Converse sneakers that was featured on the cover of ‘Vogue’ was seen as ‘belittling’ by her office.
The Daily Mail Reports–
“Kamala Harris was not happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.
During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.
‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.
‘Excuse me,’ she said, ‘it’s the Northern Triangle — not immigration.”
The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.
‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.
‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.
